Bennett (Construction) Ltd is a family-own tier-1 construction contractor that has been at the forefront of construction for over 100 years and is now in its fourth generation. It undertakes projects in Ireland, the UK and Germany, and currently has 14 projects on site, with a combined value of over €600m. The company employs over 200 people.
Bennett’s organisational structure has evolved over its 100-year history, but it retains a hands-on approach to projects with director involvement in every project. This focus on the small detail sets Bennett apart from its competitors and allows it to repeatedly deliver for clients and win work on a repeat basis. Bennett’s supply chain is diverse and robust. It has built up strong relationships with its partners over many years and can ensure that the delivery challenges on each project are matched by the skill sets within its supply chain.
Bennett had several exciting projects on site in the past 12 months, including a number of prestigious office developments in the Irish market, such as the Grade A, LEED Gold-rated North Dock and 76 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin.
It successfully achieved practical completion on Beckett Locke, an exciting aparthotel project in Dublin for Saco, a client for whom it has delivered several previous schemes, including the recent Zanzibar Locke. It is continuing its work with Saco on several other similar schemes, including Buckle Street in London.
Bennett is working towards completing the EXO, Ireland’s tallest office development at the end of the North Quays, Dublin. The EXO will have Europe’s first LEED V3 Platinum certification prior to practical completion. Taking its name from its large-scale exoskeleton steel structure, the development stands at 17 storeys high and is raised at ground level by approximately eight metres. This is complemented by an adjacent 10.5 metre-high cubic glazed bar and restaurant, with the development also boasting a 1,000-sq-metre roof garden.
Works are also well advanced on The Benson Building on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay. This project includes 72 apartments and is due for completion later this year.
In recent years, Bennett has delivered a number of large data centre facilities and is currently well advanced on data hall developments in Clonee and Grange Castle for global clients.
Earlier this year in London, Bennett completed Hounslow Place, a development of nearly 300 homes.
It is currently constructing several large high-density residential projects, including 9 Osier Way, London, a residential development consisting of 196 units. It was also recently awarded three additional phases of the Greenwich Millennium Village (GMV). This will bring the total number of residential units to over 600 delivered by Bennett under the GMV scheme.
